The city police on Sunday arrested a housewife on charges of killing her husband at Kashiapara village under Daspur police station in West Midnapore.
Police said the accused Bina Dolui during interrogation claimed that her husband Monishankar Dolui used to beat her in drunken state. After failing to bear the pain of atrocities inflicted upon her, Bina attacked her husband.
She also told the police that she had no intention to kill him. She only wanted to teach him a lesson. On Saturday night, after Monishankar had beaten up Bina, a scuffle broke out between the two.
Monishankar was in an inebriated state during the incident, Bina told police. She tied her husband with a tree which is close to their house and started beating him with stick.
The local residents later rushed to the spot and found Monishankar in an unconscious state. They took him to a nearby hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead. On the basis of the complaint lodged by Monishankar’s family members, police have arrested Bina.
